eLife Challenge - Transform research communication with technology

"Cutting-edge research is stuck in the past. Research publication, whilst the ultimate currency for researchers, does not typically enable them to show their workings in full. In addition, the traditional incentives to publish research discoveries offer few rewards for researchers who work collaboratively and transparently.  At Hack24, we will be looking for projects that improve research communication using new technologies." 

The Winning Team

Bad Hombres - Matt Jones, Asaf Paris-Mandoki, Sonali Warriar, Anton Piccardo-Selg

PackedPixels Challenge - Best Hardware Hack

"We can build incredible things with software but it is pretty pointless without hardware to run it on and to interact with the physical world with. It essential for us to have the skills to define and build custom hardware solutions where required. Our challenge is open to any team building a solution that utilises any aspect of hardware." 

The Winning Team

Hey Pesto! -  Amy Dickens, Bety Mehide, Saria Digregorio, Alexa Spors
